The southern hairy-nose wombat is smaller than other wombats but is stocky, robust and the proud state emblem of South Australia. Like the might of the little wombat, Little Giant is crafted from premium regional South Australian fruit from established vineyards that deliver character and interest well above their size and weight.
Hand-crafted and made with minimal additions and preservatives, these are wines made of the vineyard. The grapes are picked at optimal ripeness, minimally handled in the winery and fruit vibrancy is not hidden by non-essential artifact. Seeking first and foremost fruit expression, drinkability and to be a great accompaniment to food. Don’t let the size fool you, these are wines you’ll want to drink.
Sourced from premium Adelaide Hills vineyard, fruit for this Gris was pressed and then left for three hours on skins (the juice and the crushed berries) to give the palate some texture. It was fermented cool and then matured on yeast lees for 7 months in three-year old barrels.
Pristine and elegantly expressed, the inviting bouquet shows apricot, fresh pear, lemon pith and white floral aromas, leading to a beautifully rounded palate that's fleshy and supple. It's well supported by silky texture and bright acidity, making it delightfully drinkable. At its best: now to 2022. Rating: 92 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
